STEP Central is being developed through a National Science Foundation grant to the University of Oregon (PI - Daniel Udovic; Award # 1143572). It is a work-in-progress.
Concentric Sky architected, designed, and developed the STEP Central website from the ground up. Some of the main features that were built for the site, relying on the Python programming language and Django Framework, include advanced search and filtering options, user moderation tools, customized member homepages and structured Content Management System.
In addition, Concentric Sky also provides the managed hosting environment.
The developers thank the many members of the STEP community who currently serve or have served on our advisory board, have attended STEP leadership workshops, and/or are helping as beta testers of the site.
